Secrets of Spanish Florida -- A Secrets of the Dead Special


The first permanent European settlement in the United States was founded in 1565--two generations before the settlements in Jamestown and Plymouth--not by English Protestants, but by the Spanish and a melting pot of people they brought with them from Africa, Italy, Germany, Ireland and even converted Jews, who integrated almost immediately with the indigenous tribes. Secrets of Spanish Florida – A Secrets of the Dead Special uncovers one story of America’s past that never made it into textbooks.

This collection features video clips from Secrets of Spanish Florida – A Secrets of the Dead Special, including resources about the first true Thanksgiving, Native Floridians and the first free Black settlement in North America--Fort Mose.
